How Sahara Shaher came up: Activists demand enquiry
Social Activists, Nutan Thakur and Amitabh Thakur have requested the Lucknow Nagar Nigam and Lucknow Development Authority to enquire into how Sahara Shaher (Sahara City) surfaced and take necessary action accordingly. They have also prayed to be shown the official documents related with the Sahara Shahar.
The activists presented a 25 page licence agreement dated October 22, 1994 signed between Lucknow Nagar Nigam and Sahara India Housing Limited, according to which Nagar Nigam gave the 170 acre land obtained from Lucknow Development Authority (LDA) to Sahara Housing with an undertaking that Sahara Housing would construct plots and flats and would allot them to general public, though the possession and title of the land would remain vested in Nagar Nigam, who shall in turn be signing these lease deeds. This scheme was to get completed within 4 years.

In addition a provisional lease dead, dated 22 October 1994, finalised through final deed dated June 23, 1995 gave the 40 acre land in village Ujariaon and Jiamau on 30 years lease to Sahara Housing to develop it as a Green belt within 4 years.

Sahara Housing has not complied with these agreement conditions till date. Instead of making plots and flats for common people and creating Green belt, it has turned in into a fortress like Sahara Shaher.

Hence, the activists duo Nutan Thakur and Amitabh Thakur have requested for a specialised high-level enquiry committee consisting of specialists from urban development, finance and law to enquire into the matter thereby fixing accountability as well as suggesting the best possible course of action in public interest to be taken now.
